Tell me about it. I have been MIA all weekend. 
With good reason though, the sis has been in town!
It was a fun whirlwind!
We went to the zoo, shopping, hot tubbing, shopping,
eating, shopping, beach, shopping, parties, shopping... and then she went home
early this morning. 
Too early for my tastebuds.

Fall Foodies

With the most beloved holidays of the year
just around the corner, I thought Id share
some of the delicious treats I am looking 
forward to this year.
Now, as far as Thanksgiving goes, Im not much
of a Turkey gal.
But dont get me wrong, my Dad
calls me a Turkey all the time.
I am def more of a 
TREAT girl.
One year my husband wrote a Thanksgiving song for 
one of his friends who was a kindergarten teacher.
It was something about a boy whos mother wanted him
to go out and find a Turkey, once he found the Turkey, it
tried to convince him to not eat him, with these lyrics:

Gobble gobble gobble
Cluck cluck cluck
Dont eat a Turkey
Go eat a Duck.

Long story short, it worked.
And the boy and the Turkey went and 
got ice cream instead or something.

I love all the holiday treats.
Heres what Im eyeing this year:

Baked Brie in a Bread bowl

Helpful Home Remedies

Whilst searching the internet I came upon this list
of cool home remedies.
Some of them look useful like
Preparation H for puffy eyes
while others look silly like
WD-40 for arthritis.
Worth a shot though right?
Let me know, if youve ever used any, if you do 
use any, and what works and what doesnt.
In this economy we could all use a little dose of frugality...

1.    Budweiser beer conditions the hair   
2.    Pam cooking spray will dry finger nail polish
3.    Cool Whip will condition your hair in 15 minutes
4.    Mayonnaise will KILL LICE, it will also condition your hair

Hello Dolly vs Breakfast at Tiffanys

I have been browsin the oldies lately on Netflix.
I love a great classical.
I even watched Don Juan DeMarco
with the lovely J. Depp.
(Dont recommend it)
And I have to admit, that although The Aud
is lovely, ridiculously gorgeous, and just a pleasure
to watch, the movie, was not.

I apologize if I have offended some people.

But I was pleasantly surprised with
Hello Dolly and The Streisand.
I think I just love musicals. 
That movie was just super cute.
Now I get why she is so famous.
Loved it!

Whats your all time favorite classical?

Witch Costume Inspiration

I was probably a witch for Halloween as far back as I can remember. 
My mom would rat out my hair and paint my face green and give me 
super dark and arched eyebrows.
I loved it.

So guys, remember when I was super selfish, held out on the the Anthro sale and then went there and
the sweater I wanted all to myself wasnt even there? Well, then I put the sale alert on my blog
for the whole world. Major sharing. It just so happened that I went to Anthro 2 days later with my
girls who needed to make a return, it was like 15min to closing. 
I just walked around while she made her return
and THEY HAD MY SWEATER! ONE, thats right ONE left, IN MY SIZE!

Creating a Blog Button

Having a button for your blog is great because when you feature other bloggers crafts
(as I do sometimes) it is then SO easy for them, to have your button as a "badge" for where they have been featured. Its a great visual link for people as well. SO much easier to see and click on an image than just a plain text link.

Halloween Costume Confusion

I dont know that Im really "confused" about what we all should be, or if the alliteration was just too fitting to not use. But I do know that I still dont know what the boys are going to be. As far as Im concerned its really cute to have the whole family kind of "match", you know, like ones a pirate, a fish, and Im a mermaid. Or something of the like.

Oh Monday

I dont know what it is about Monday, but I sure do feel bad for the guy. No one likes Monday.
I know, I dont. Oh, Monday. You poor thing, you really have very little friends. If you would please just stop associating yourself with the likes of , alarm clock, laundry, work, and errands, I'm sure more people would like you. You should try to get to know, beach, lazy, and eating out a little better.
